Publisher's Summary

A LONG-LOST LIBRARY. A PRICELESS MANUSCRIPT. A DEADLY SECRET ...

About to depart on his first vacation in years, Edward Wozny, a hot-shot young banker, is sent to help one of his firms most important and mysterious clients. When asked to un-crate and organise a personal library of rare books, Edward's indignation turns to intrigue as he realises that among the volumes there may be hidden a unique medieval codex, a treasure kept sealed away for many years and for many reasons.

Edward's intrigue becomes an obsession that only deepens as friends draw him into a peculiar and addictive computer game, as mystifying parallels between the game's virtual reality and the legend of the codex emerge ...

    I have always been an avid devourer of the written word. I am now no longer to read books and cannot wait for Audible day each month.

    Story
    "The Sublime & The Ridiculous Entwined"

    This book kept me enthralled, and I got my earphones out at every opportunity. The story is of a high-flying American financier who decides to take a holiday. During his period of leave, he becomes entangled in the search for a medieval document, the eponymous "Codex" of the title. The story is exciting and moves at a pace; it is built around the alleged conflict between an English duke & duchess.

    The story works its way up to an exciting conclusion. The conclusion, however, never comes. In a nutshell, the story just stops. It's extremely annoying and leaves the listener feeling totally short-changed.

    "Great!"

    I really enjoyed this. Thought it was a great story well read. Looking forward to more by this author. If you enjoy a good story then I'd say give this a listen.
